Folded Forest is the work of Ruth Viqueira and Sarah Peel. Together we design and make a range of limited edition prints, homewares and stationary, all screenprinted by hand in our small studio in Harden, West Yorkshire. We find inspiration in the natural world around us: the woodlands, moorlands and nearby beaches of our home. We try to offer an imagined glimpse into these environments and the lives of the creatures inhabiting them…
Our designs begin as hand made paper-cuts, which we arrange into patterns or detailed scenes. Layers are added with pen, ink and tracing paper, then exposed onto screens ready for printing by hand. Screenprinting allows us to carefully choose and layer colours and to print onto all sorts of interesting surfaces, from delicate linen fabric, smooth birch ply wood to beautiful cotton paper. Our aim is to design and make products that people feel a connection to; products made with care from high quality materials that will be treasured and enjoyed for years to come.
